This scholarship honors the late Lynda Petty, who dedicated her life to improving public education for the children of Randolph County. Mrs. Petty, known as the “First Lady of NASCAR,” supported the Randolph County community in many ways, but most commendably, she served as a local leader in education. During her lifetime, Lynda served as a school volunteer, and, from 1984 to 2000, served as a member of the Randolph County Board of Education including taking on the role as its Chairperson for seven years. NCCAT’s Lynda Petty Honored Educator Scholarship pays tribute to her lifelong commitment to the teaching profession.

Farmer's very own Mr. Martin recieved the 2017 Lynreceived Scholarship  to recognize the impact he has made for the students/children of Randolph County Schools. Dr. Stephen Gainey recognized his achievement and Mr. Martin attended a North Carolina Advancement of Teaching (NCCAT) session of his choice with a $250 scholarship. His session was a week long program on Ocracoke Island; Grant Writing.
